Graduation Day

Tuesday, July 23









Last Friday was the mark of the boys end to education. Well, for now anyway. Unfortunately the university wouldn't allow him more than two tickets to the ceremony so i spent the morning baking his cake, which ending up tasting like a giant oreo, and wrapping his present. In the afternoon i changed out of my bikini, put on my finery and drove down to The George at Stamford to meet the boy and his parents for drinks.

The weather was gloriously hot and the grounds set a perfect scene for photographs and afternoon tea. The last time i was here was Christmas and these grounds were full of trees all lit up. We chatted about future plans, his mum showed me photos of the ceremony and i gushed how proud i was of him. After drinks we took the long stroll round back to the cars so we could take photos and enjoy the sunshine a little longer. The boy and i posed and pouted and tried to tickle each other while the camera was pointed at us. 

A short ride later and we arrived at The Exeter arms for our meal. We sat in the evening light munching on delicious food and wine until the sun went down. A sleepy ride home and i greeted the boy with his final surprise. His cake. We headed for our beds knowing we could eat it in the morning for breakfast.
